Biography

Representing the Albuquerque Olympic Club, Cathy Hamblin competed in the 1968 Olympic pentathlon while still a student at Jackson High School in Albuquerque, although she was hampered by a leg injury in Mexico City. She was the AAU Junior champion in the long jump in 1968. Hamblin competed in the pentathlon twice at the AAU Meet, finishing fifth in 1968 and third in 1969. The 1968 AAU was the Olympic Trials, but her fifth place finish put her on the US team, as the champion that year was [Chi Cheng] of Taiwan, and Hamblin had tied for fourth with Janis Glotzer, who had not made the qualifying standard. Hamblin was also sixth in the long jump at the 1968 AAU.
